PASs for Trade Associations and Professional Bodies

As a trade association or professional body you play an important role in supporting your members. We can support you to provide the best service to your members and help you to demonstrate that you are the thought leader in your industry. 

Here are just some of the reasons why our trade association and professional body sponsors worked with us on a PAS:


  • Support members to build trust with their customers, suppliers and contractors
  • Support innovation across emerging sectors and markets by providing an agreed and consistent approach
  • Increase global reach through the collaboration with international stakeholders


  • Provide members with a self-regulatory approach to resolving issues so they avoid regulation and remain competitive
  • Help members to avoid costs associated with compliance or penalties for non-compliance
  • Support for industry Kitemark and Certification schemes

Credibility and Quality
